The name Noll is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the area that was referred to as the knoll. This surname was originally derived from the Old English word cnolle which means one who lived at the top of the hill or the summit. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
